Student Artists Model Ephemeral Studios in Jerome After Scottsdale's Art One Gallery

Holding a bake sale to fund an art gallery is either ridiculous or inspired. The five NAU art students who did it mostly remember it as embarrassing.

Oil painters Devin Kelly, Patrick Keig, Sumer Khan, Andrea Newman, and Jeff Urdang had been sharing studio space while working on their undergrad degrees at Northern Arizona University when Newman found out about a gallery vacancy in the Old Jerome High School in Jerome. Though they were somewhat unsure, the friends recognized the opening as an opportunity they couldn't pass up. So they rallied.
